ADLINK Introduces Feature-Rich COM Express® Module with 4th Generation Intel® Core™ Processor

Apr 01, 2014

Enhanced graphics performance, massive storage with high-speed data transfer interfaces, and multiple display support make the module ideal for medical imaging and weather radar.

ADLINK Technology, Inc., a leading provider of embedded computing products and application-ready intelligent platforms, rolled out its most advanced COM Express® Type 6 module, adopting the 4th generation Intel® Core™ processor (formerly codenamed Haswell) and delivering breakthrough CPU performance, stunning graphics, and improved security functions. The ADLINK Express-HL is among the first products in an array of industrial embedded systems delivering the computing power of Intel’s newest generation Core processor family. The new module is well suited for intelligent systems innovations in a variety of market segments, such as retail, medicine, gaming, transportation, defense, communications, and industrial automation.

The ADLINK Express-HL adopts the PICMG COM.0 rev 2.1 form factor with Type 6 pin-out, a forward-thinking pin-out specification enabling a robust feature set, which-with the introduction of the 4th generation Intel® Core™ processor family can for the first time be fully utilized. The Express-HL supports the 4th generation Intel® Core™ 2- and 4-core mobile processors (i7/i5) with the Mobile Intel® QM87 Express Chipset and up to 16GB dual channel DDR3L SDRAM at 1600 MHz system memory. The 4th generation Intel® Core™ processors also offer a huge performance gain for floating-point-intensive computations by adding new instructions to Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX); these advanced instructions are especially beneficial for digital signal and image processing applications, such as medical imaging or radar.

To fully tap the benefits of 4th generation Intel® Core™ processors, the ADLINK Express-HL provides rich image output options, including LVDS, analog VGA, and multiple DDI (for DP or HDMI) originating directly from the CPU to provide a considerable increase in bandwidth and resolution over the previous generation Intel® Core™ processor. The new module can support three independent displays, all of which can be DDI (compared to past generation processor requirements of CRT/DDI or LVDS/DDI combinations), and a PCIe x16 port is available for external video cards. The Express-HL also provides a full set of high-speed I/O interfaces – with seven PCIE x1, four USB 3.0 ports, and four USB 2.0 ports, as well as four SATA-III (6GB) ports.

Exemplifying ADLINK’s market-proven capabilities in designing Extreme Rugged™ and reliable platforms, the Express-HL module is provided with a SEMA (Smart Embedded Management Agent) controller, which monitors BIOS, power, temperature, watchdog, and board information. The module also supports a wide voltage input range of 8.5V~20V, and an operating temperature range from -40 to +85oC.


ADLINK Technology provides a wide range of embedded computing products and services to the test & measurement, automation & process control, gaming, communications, medical, network security, and transportation industries. ADLINK products include PCI Express-based data acquisition and I/O; vision and motion control; and AdvancedTCA, CompactPCI, and computer-on-modules (COMs) for industrial computing. With the acquisition of Ampro Computers, Inc. and LiPPERT Embedded Computers GmbH, ADLINK also provides a wide range of rugged by design Extreme Rugged™ and Rugged product lines including single board computers, COMs and systems. 

ADLINK strives to minimize the total cost of ownership (TCO) of its customers by providing customization and system integration services, maintaining low manufacturing costs, and extending the lifecycle of its products. ADLINK is a worldwide company with headquarters and manufacturing in Taiwan; R&D and integration in Taiwan, China, the US, and Germany; and an extensive network of worldwide sales and support offices.

ADLINK is ISO-9001, ISO-14001, ISO-13485 and TL9000 certified, is a Premier  Member of the Intel® Intelligent System Alliance, an Executive Member of PICMG, a Sponsor Member of the PXI Systems Alliance, an Executive Member of PC/104 Consortium, a Strategic Member of the AXIe Consortium, and a member of VMEbus International Trade Association (VITA). ADLINK is a publicly traded company listed on the TAIEX Taiwan Stock Exchange (stock code: 6166).
